Waimakariri District Council media release: 15th November 2018

Friendship, family, fun and food feature high on all our wish lists during Christmas and the New Year. Waimakariri District Council’s Community Team are getting into the spirit of this special season by bringing together all of these things at a series of nine neighbourhood park BBQs.

The initiative is a way for residents and friends of the District to enjoy Mother Nature while grazing on a picnic, enjoying a BBQ sausage, and partaking in old-fashioned games and activities.

Waimakariri District Community Board Members will attend and look forward to the opportunity to mix and mingle with guests. Information about other activities, services and potential developments in the District will also be available.

Community Team Manager Tessa Sturley says of the free opportunity, “We are thrilled to be able to host opportunities like this that make the most of our beautiful natural environment. It gives families and people of all ages the chance to spend time in the company of people they care about, make new connections, and share in new ideas about the future of our special District.”

The Neighbourhood BBQs’ schedule is as follows with all events held between 5 and 7pm.

  • Thursday 22nd November in Baker Park in Kaiapoi;
  • Thursday 29th November at Pankhurst Park in Woodend;
  • Thursday 6th December at Good St Park in Rangiora;
